Since you have been interested in my workouts, my double session was amazing. I'll put it this way...we started off with 3 - 5 minute circuits. The first two minutes were freestyle kickboxing on the heavy bag, the third minute was ground and pound, the fourth minute was crunches on the stability ball and the last was back extensions with arm raises (also on the stability ball). This circuit was repeated three times. The rope made an appearance, lots of kicks on the heavy bag, squats, and a few rounds (I think we did five rounds? Four or five for sure) of attack and defend drills for 3 to 5 minutes. That is where I basically only use boxing and "attack" my trainer throwing punches at him while he defends. This helps my stamina as well as my accuracy and timing. It's also a lot of fun :) I made sure to drink tons of water (with Vega hydrating powder mixed in) and got through it and felt great after!
So lets check out what fueled this craziness :)
For breakfast I had a green smoothie. This is Gena's Cherry Vanilla Smoothie and I actually used vanilla this time. It was delicious! I cut down to half a serving of protein powder for breakfast shakes because I'm going through it like crazy and this stuff is expensive!
Late morning I had a pear.
For lunch I had some avocado toast and salad. I made a huge salad this morning to have enough for lunch and dinner because I was concerned I wouldn't have the energy to make it later!
Before my workout I knew I needed a little carb boost so I had a third of a cup of granola with a quarter cup of almond milk.
After my workout I had this protein shake. I made it ahead of time so I could drink it as soon as I got home so it thickened a bit in the fridge but it was fine. This one has almond milk, chocolate protein powder, banana and almond butter.
Dinner is more salad with three stuffed grape leaves and about a tablespoon of hummus.
Another really great day of food! After all of the craziness I still feel good, even though I'm sure I'll sleep well tonight! I think that the small meals more often really is the best way to go as well, and it helps me make sure that I get all of my calories for the day.
I hope you all had a great day!
